Al Reef Lebanese Bakery

Baklava is a rich, sweet pastry made of layers of filo pastry filled with chopped nuts and sweetened with syrup or honey. – Wiki

I’ve realized that my appetite for bread have grown increasingly the longer I stayed in Dubai which is good for me of course. I wanted to gain weight – so bread is a friend.

Cheese manakish of Al Reef Lebanese Bakery, is for me the best cheese bread ever! It is a white Arabic bread that is serve fresh and warm with cheese filling (mozzarella) made from wood-fired oven.

It’s so good when it is still warm you can see the cheese stretches when you bite. For only 6 dirhams my dinner is solved!

According to an Emirati friend who referred this bakery. Al Reef is the oldest and famous for it’s delicious Arabic bread and sweets.

The bakery is located in the same street of Karama Post Office. The shop beside it serves nice shawarmas too. What I like about the shop is the massive selection of Arabic sweets displayed on each side of the shop.

Singapore Deli in Karama

After a long day of work we have decided to visit an old fave restaurant. In the buzzing place of Karama sits Singapore Deli that serves Asian dishes mainly, Indonesian and Malaysian. 

For starters we had Fried Tempe (Tofu). This was served hot with an amazing super spicy dip.  We considered ordering Sambal Tempe but decided to choose the former. According to my partner it’s the spiciest food he had ever tried.

I have ordered Fried chicken with Kangkong and steamed rice (very similar to Filipino food). There’s a small dip on the side which I’m not familiar with but it tasted like fermented something with chili on it. It has a strong flavor although it really compliments the dish. 

My partner ordered a Seafood Curry noodles. It has a light flavor just as what you have expected in a curry soup.
